Critic Reviews for Waru
A fascinating glimpse into New Zealand's contemporary Maori community, Waru brings a sense of dramatic, urgent realism to a story that plays out like a suspenseful mystery.
Joined together, the shorts are a powerful chorus of female Maori voices united in finding a way to protect all that is vulnerable.
This film seeks to give voice in a profoundly moving, honest and intelligent way to a pain that can barely be described, rendering Waru without question one of the most important and extraordinary films of 2017.
A poignant, brutal look at grief and survival in a society that is often overlooked and over-generalised.
Although perhaps a tough-sell on paper, Waru stands a sturdy testament to the way film can generate resonant art from difficult subject matter. All New Zealanders should see it.
